Del. lawmakers thank forces for bin Laden's death

Monday, May 02, 2011

Members of Delaware's congressional delegation are thanking U.S. armed forces for their role in Osama bin Laden's death.

Sen. Chris Coons called the news "a momentous development" and "a tribute to the hard, dedicated work of our armed forces."

Sen. Tom Carper says the country "can now find some solace" that bin Laden "finally received the justice that he so richly deserved." However, he cautioned "this is not the end of our efforts to fight terrorism."

Sheila Flocco of Wilmington, whose son was killed at the Pentagon during the Sept. 11 attacks, says she had been waiting 10 years for the news.

Wilmington resident Jill Abbott, whose father was killed at the World Trade Center, says she hopes no other family will suffer as hers did.
